Liked: I liked the safety and the breakfast

Disliked: The Bathrooms are awful, you almost can't close the door, and sit down on the toilet, because it's so small.

Liked: The staff is amazing, do help the travellers and are very charismatic!

Disliked: The bathrooms a little bit weird, they're for both boys and girls, but I got used to it in no time and didn't feel uncunfortable anymore. But I know a lot of people wouldn't like it.

Liked: The female 6 bed dorm is nice and has a modrn and clean bathroom. It's also nice and quiet. The breakfast is good and served by a lovely lady

Disliked: In the femal 6 bed dorm 4 of the beds top bunks or on a mezzanine so require climbing but the modern facilities and bathroom make up for this.

Liked: Very helpful staff. And they are present at the hostel 24/7, unlike other hostels in São Paulo. Shower space is large, as is the locker under the bed. Good breakfast served by a nice lady (bread, butter, cheese and ham, fruits, orange juice, milk, chocolate powder and coffee). Very good location. Only two blocks away from the subway, and close to ATMs, pharmacies and convenience stores in Paulista Avenue. The included wi-fi is fast and worked well in my room.

Disliked: Only two power outlets in the room I stayed (a room for 10). Needless to say that those two were not enough for everyone in the room. Also some guests alongside hotel staff were talking loudly and drinking until late hours (2+ am!). Its ok to do it (and expected to happen), but they were talking right beneath the window in my room, so it got annoyingly loud. Bring your pair of noise-canceling buds and something to cover your eyes, as other guests tend to crank up the lights as they arrive from the night out. All the power outlets in this hostel comply with the new brazilian standards, so be sure to bring your adapters (they will lend you the ones they have available, but it isnt up to demand).
